Melamine Foam thanks to its versatility, can be used in simple as well as technically demanding applications.

It is a low-density, open-cell polymer material, which offers specific benefits in certain applications, particularly where sound absorption, fire retardancy, heat and chemical resistance are required in a flexible, lightweight material.

Properties include:

  • Low Density (11 Kg/m³) – low weight factors
  • Wide temperature Range up to 240°C [465°F]
  • Excellent Acoustic Properties
  • Excellent Thermal Insulation
  • Excellent Low Temperature Flexibility
  • Constant Physical properties over a wide temperature range
  • Flame Resistance
  • Abrasiveness

Typical Applications

  • Ceiling Tiles & Wall Panels in Public Transport
  • Baffles in Sound Recording Studios.
  • Suspended Ceiling baffles/Traps in buildings with high ceilings in the Construction Industry.
  • Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning linings, Pipe Lagging.
  • Aircraft Seating
  • Cleaning & Spillage
  • Thermo-formable Automotive Parts
  • Low Temperature Insulation of Liquid Gas Tanks
  • Heat & Noise Management in Cars

Melamine foam can be laminated to other high specification facings such as foil, Kevlar fibres, glass cloth amongst others.

New Ultra-light versions are available for Aerospace applications at 6 Kg/m³ for weight saving and thus fuel savings.

The foams have the ability to be compression moulded to give unique shapes.
